Last night, I dropped SWMBO off at her Christmas office party, which left me alone with my to-do list, and a takeaway chinese supper. Lovely. I finally cracked open my liter-stein can of good german beer, poured it into my chilled german beer-stein and watched 'Have I got News for you'. Live is good.

I should have finished there, went back to my office and completed the pile of work I'd promised everyone for today. But no. I thought I'd head down the pub for a 'swift pint'. Ah. Taking the Stein glass with me. As an experiment, to see if it worked. And it did work well, taking 2 imperial pints at a time..

Hence the picture. Kids, avoid strong alcohol. Else you end up looking like this in the morning.
